When Does Chevrolet Plan To Be All Electric?  
 

As one of the leading car brands in the world, Chevy's continued to be a competing automaker that has influenced the decisions of other manufacturers in the industry. As a part of General Motors, it was recently announced that the company would move toward only producing all-electric vehicles. It hopes that it will only sell EV models by 2035.

The company plans to invest approximately $35 billion into the transition, which will require changes to its plants. 20% of the process of manufacturing GM vehicles will need to be adjusted to ensure EV vehicles can be assembled. Although the sales of GM have declined in recent years, CEO Mary Barra has been able to shift the company's direction and help them remain more competitive. The goal of transitioning into an all-electric car company is one part of her goal to increase the success of GM. This will also allow them to remain more competitive with similar car brands like Volkswagen and Tesla.

Recently, the company announced that it would have heavy-duty electric pickup trucks available by 2040. However, they're now working at a faster speed and have moved that release date up to 2035. Their light-duty electric pickup trucks will be available sooner.

This transition is anticipated to be one of the largest changes to occur in the auto industry for many decades. Similar auto companies like Acura are also planning to only sell electric vehicles in the next decade to accommodate the increasing demand and reduce their impact on the environment.

Some of the most anticipated electric vehicles that will be powered by a battery include the General Motors Hummer, which has a reputation as a gas-guzzling SUV. The Hummer will have the capacity to travel up to 350 miles after every charge, making it more competitive compared to similar electric SUVs in its class.

Ford is another automaker that has announced its plans to transition 40% of its vehicles to electric models in the next decade. One of the main challenges that many car brands face is the lack of availability of computer chips. However, many experts are hopeful the shortage will be corrected in the near future to increase production and meet the demand for electric cars. By the end of 2022, there's a chance more computer chips will be available to all car manufacturers who are releasing more EV models on the market.
